1)SET TIME LIMITS
Children have the tendency to roam all over the place once they have a bit of freedom, and the longer they roam, the more places they can find and they may be horrible places. The best thing to do in this case: Set a time for them to surf online. Depending on their age, give them the standard two hour surf time. That’s enough to do research, play online, and other activities.
2)DON’T GUESS -ASK
Your child needs to know they can come to you with any question at all about something unusual they find online. As a parent, the first rule of thumb would be not to have a very young child on the computer without supervision in the first place. They should be in your vision at all times. Tell the child they are allowed to ask questions about questionable sites and that you will not be mad at them. This will require you to look over their shoulders once in a while.
